Making a personal injury claim
Claims for compensation must usually be made within a 3-year window, starting from the date the injury occurred.
In the majority of cases, proving a claim involves three components. It must be shown that:
- a duty of care was owed
- that the duty was breached
- the breach was the cause of the injury or illness
In all cases, a brief, no-obligation call with a specialist lawyer can provide answers and advice.
Choosing the best personal injury lawyer
Finding the most suitable solicitor for your case is an important step towards negotiating the highest settlement or award for your injuries.
With approximately 100 offices within a 25 radius of Redditch (according to the SRA database), how do you make sure you choose the ideal firm for your needs?
Will you need to select a local injury lawyer ?
The location of the solicitor is not so important as cases can be handled without the need to meet the solicitor.
You will need to select a law firm that has national medical centres (possibly even home visits) as you will almost always have to go to a medical exam.
Once a settlement has been agreed, solicitors working on a no win no fee basis will usually charge a success fee and ATE insurance premium. For example, deductions from a Claimant's compensation for deafness could vary between £73,315 and £88,660 (based on 2015 market research).
